GTT Group, the premier provider of patent analysis and transaction advisory services to information and communication technology companies worldwide, has announced the availability of a Machine Vision patent portfolio. The portfolio relates to technologies central to industrial applications of computer vision technology.

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group) is representing the sale of the Machine Vision patent portfolio related to key computer vision technologies. The patent portfolio contains fourteen issued U.S. assets and strongly correlates to existing machine vision technologies on the market. The patented technology reflects early innovation in the machine vision industry with priority dates as early as September of 1995.

The Machine Vision patent portfolio offers a strong, early portfolio in the machine vision space. The industry has seen multi-billion dollar revenue in North America for multiple years and continued growth in the industry is expected. With applications to a wide array of industries, including automotive, pharmaceutical, electronics, consumer goods, printing and agriculture, the Machine Vision portfolio provides strong patent coverage in the machine vision space.

The portfolio covers several technical areas including machine vision application software development. Computer vision programs that allow for interactive editing of vision tools in a control-flow structure are covered in the embodiments. In addition, tools that provide ActiveX/COM controls and .NET controls to facilitate development and third-party integration are covered by the application software development patents.

The patent portfolio also covers technology concerning automatically measuring the color difference between a color distribution of an object and a reference color image. The patented technology is advantageously used in automated color difference measurement systems. Color difference measurement systems are used in a variety of industry applications including: 1) identifying product flaws; 2) color degradation in foods; 3) alignment of color coded parts; 4) color matching used in image processing, printing, or scanning; 5) color calibration used in display product quality control; 6) image archiving; 7) colorimetry; and 8) in video compression when identifying redundant imagery. The patent portfolio provides considerable application and breadth.

The portfolio provides a unique opportunity for companies looking to establish, solidify or expand their strategic position in the competitive machine vision industry. GTT Group has prepared market adoption materials for qualified interested parties under non-disclosure, non-notice provisions.

GTT Group will be approaching potential buyers and providing materials explaining the strategic advantages of acquiring the portfolio.
